The trail is impossible to follow unless you have gps guiding you. There are sooo many intersecting trails and this one is not marked at all! After 2 hours I was about half way through the trail but had to backtrack because I was running out of cell phone battery. Be prepared before hiking this one! Download gps, bring extra cell phone charger and extra water! I thought it was moderate to hard. I will do it again but will be better prepared! Recommend hiking shoes for sure! On the plus side, it had beautiful views and I only ran across 3 people during the 2 hours. :)
